Fine places to send my ears and mind
This work takes control in a subtle manner. Things emerge and take hold, usually in a musical manner and just as comfort sets in there's been an unexpected shift of focus, style or mode. What's interesting is how subtle the changes of mood and manner settle in. The range of musical expression and the gentle experimental touches are neither too conventional nor excessively unapproachable.
I'm glad I spent time letting this work take over my world.
